Less is More
While you may want a brand-new luxury vehicle, the price may not fit within your budget. Talk with us about all of the options we have in stock that include some of the special amenities you are hoping for.
Know What You Are Looking For
Instead of just looking for any midsize sedan, decide on color and features first. Whether you have a specific price range, or want it to have great safety features, be aware of this while you begin your search.
Look at the mileage
When looking for affordable cars, you may be able to find great deals with higher mileage vehicles still in excellent condition. At Carson Cars, we also specialize in low-mileage vehicles at great prices.
Choose Highway Miles Over City Miles
More miles does not mean that the car is in worse shape, but more city miles means it may be physically abused more. This is because highway miles do not take as much of a toll on the vehicle. There are a few ways to diagnose whether a car has been used mostly for highway or city driving.
- Tar specks and stone chips: These will be found on the front bumper, grille, hood lip, and mirrors.
- Bent fins and debris in the radiator: These are natural occurrences of high-way driving.
- Little wear on the brake pedal and door sill.
